A YA for Rom-Com fans

Jenny Han’s latest book hits just the right notes for summer reading. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is funny, touching, romantic and fast-paced and the perfect contemporary YA choice for your beach bag. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Lara Jean’s story as she navigates her way through love, friendship and family drama.

The scoop on To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is that Lara Jean is the quiet middle child – overshadowed by perfect know-it-all Margot and precocious younger sister Kitty. Lara Jean is kind of the Jan Brady of the group. The three Song girls lost their mother at a young age, and Margot takes on a mothering type role for the family. When Margot leaves for college, she also breaks it off with boy next-door Josh, someone who happens to be a secret letter recipient. Awkward! With Margot now off in Scotland, Lara Jean has to step up and help her dad by taking on some more responsibility. But first she has to deal with the repercussions of her secret letters that are now no longer a secret!

The delivery of the secret letters puts Lara Jean’s life in an uproar. Sweet family friend Josh is obviously confused to receive a love note from his ex-girlfriend’s sister (even though Josh and Lara Jean kinda liked each other first.) Then, popular, handsome, charismatic Peter Kavinsky receives his letter and that changes the game altogether. Perhaps they can help each other make their objects of affection jealous by staging a fake romance? (Lara Jean still has a crush on Josh and Peter is not quite over his ex) Sounds like a perfect scenario right- what could go wrong?!

Lara Jean has to gain confidence and put herself out there for the first time- no more hiding behind secret letters or her sister Margot. She’s a little shy and awkward which makes her more endearing. But going through these new challenges could give her just the confidence boost she needs.

To all The Boys is a love letter to sisters as well as to first crushes. The sisters are so close since losing their mom and honor her by keeping family traditions alive. The girls are half Korean and their dad makes sure to include Korean meals as one of the ways to remember their mom. Lara Jean’s cultural observations were also insightful.

Narrator Laura Knight Keating is a good fit for this audiobook, and brings out the humor in the story. She sounds age appropriate and differentiates all the characters. Her pacing is good and overall I think she did a solid job overall and I’d listen to her again in the sequel. The audiobook is a Whispersync for Kindle title and it’s quite affordable if you own the kindle edition.

Listen to To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before if you like: Contemporary YA, Anna and the French Kiss, The Summer I Turned Pretty series, and romantic comedies.

loved it!

I binge read this in 24 hours and have no regrets! While the story was kind of slow early on, Lara Jean's struggle is something many teenage girls go through--crushes, family struggle, the nature of girl cattiness, and learning to live outside your comfort zone. It was nostalgic to read this book because I, too, remember writing letters I'd never send to boys who I had crushes on in high school.

The biggest criticism I have for this book, though, is that I don't think it really had much of a plot. I mean, yes it was a story of her life, but I do not feel like the letters really had that much significance in the actual plot, which is what the story was supposed to be about, right? The book was more about how her letters caused her double epic love triangles and her sisters than the letters themselves. it didnt bother me, though, because it was kind of nice to read a book with a character that cared more about other things than just throwing her life away for a boy she met within 24 hours.

The book made me laugh and smirk to myself many times, as the characters came alive. they all have personalities that could easily be compared to someone I know. I think the Laura Knight Keating did a great job performing this, aiding to creating life to these characters.

I loved this book and am excited to jump into the next book in the duology

Whaaaaat?!?!!

Any additional comments?

I really liked this book. I liked it a lot. I thought it started out a little slow, but once it got going, I couldn't stop listening. But the end....the end!!!!! I can not believe it stopped where and how it did!!! I am just a little disappointed with that part. All in all though, I really enjoyed it, and I would recommend it to friends!

To All the Boys I've Loved Before

I have watched the Netflix show twice and thought well if I like this that much maybe the books are as good.

THEY ARE! I completely enjoyed this book. Lara Jean is just a teenage girl who is trying to survive high school. She has this idea of what love is like so she writes 5 love letters to boys she had fallen for.
They get sent and things go a rye.

I completely enjoyed the inner monologue she has, but also I very much like the dynamic she has with her sisters and her dad it is sweet.

I am loving the teenage drama, and I hate drama! Lol

Laura Knight Keating narration is perfect she doesn’t sound too old or too young, she does just the right job.

From a fan of the movie

I watched the movie before reading the book. Something that I almost never do. The book somehow had more material and less. Characters had both more development and less personality. Or vice versa. I found myself more annoyed with different scenes in the book than in awe. Characters as well. I was looking forward to this book because I loved the movie, but I have to give my vote to the on screen adaptation. I still plan to read the other two books in this series, but I don’t think that I will be in a rush to do so. Overall, I think it’s the author’s writing style that throws me off so much.

Movie was better

It's very rare to find a movie that out did the book, but in this one, that is exactly what happened!! The book made Lara Jean seem so immature and needy. Also, no one would put up with Peter, and its hard to see why Lara Jean fell for him in the book. His character in the movie was much better. All the characters were much better in the movie. The ending of the book ruined it for me.

Not a fair rating

I was way too old for this book. The immaturity throughout reminded me more of middle school relationships instead of high school. I am not sure if it was the authors intent to make the character sound whiney, or if it was the narrator. I am going to say something I don't think I've ever said before, the movie was better.

The movie ruined it for me

The movie ruined it for me. I watched Netflix's version before I bought this audiobook because the movie left wanting for more. However, the film was made for a more mature audience. The characters are older and less immature whereas the book is clearly meant for younger audience. That's the story annoyed me at times.

But that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it at all! It was a fun, light-hearted story to listen to. I liked the narration because Keating sounded like Lara Jean. And even if she didn't do the male voices really well, I still appreciate how they made it easier for me to keep track on who's talking.

Also, despite liking the movie more than the book, I still enjoyed comparing them.

I'm obsessed with Peter and Lara Jean

I watched the movie on Netflix and I needed to read the books because I am obsessed with Lara Jean and Peter!! I'm surprised that I like the movie better hahahah I mean, the changes made were to make the story better, I sincerely didn't like Peter very much in the book, he is arrogant and cold and kinda mean... But as the story was progressing, Peter changed and slowly turned into the Peter from the movie... Lara Jean is great, she's funny and innocent!! Now I gotta listen to PS I love You ASAP because CLIFFYYYYYY Peter, here I come for you <3

Cute!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would to those that LOVE YA Contemporary. But for those of us that like a little more depth and less fluff, I would say skip it.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jenny Han? Why or why not?

This was the first book of hers that I read, but I own a few. This was too fluffy for my taste, so maybe.

Have you listened to any of Laura Knight Keating’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I adored her!

It was ok

For the first time ever I prefer a movie to the book... the plot is ok but the writing and narrator weren’t great, found the narrators voice quite annoying and the characters are less likeable than in the movie

Lovely narration

Not sure I'd have enjoyed reading this one without the narration. The writing isn't fantastic but it's a lovely narration and definitely added to the experience. I will continue with this trilogy and do it with the narration as I'm not sure I'd enjoy it simply by reading it.

Definitely one of my fav books of all times

I'm just so in love with this book, I could listen to it over and over again. Beautiful story and easily relatable. I mean, we all went through all the questioning about love, the chills of falling in love for the first time, etc. that Lara Jean is going through in this first book. I just can't wait to start the second book of the series. And the narrator is so good at it that you actually feel every bit of emotions in the story. Thank you Jenny Han for this!!!

BEST BOOK EVER!

I watched the film first, it was sooo good tbat I watched it about 8 times on one week lol, later on I found out it was a book and learned that the book is so much better. Listening to the audio book made it even better as the narrator did such an amzing job. I must add, aren't Peter and Lara jean the cutest??? Yes they are.

OMG THE NARRATOR IS A GENIUS

This was such a pleasant read. I couldn't stop listening.
I was so pleasantly surprised by the narration. I've never found it easier to tell characters apart through their voice. Every character has such a unique tone, the narrator deserves immense praise.
I new I would love the book because I also enjoyed the movie, but the book surpassed my expectations by far. I feel young, refreshed and excited to purchase the rest of the series.
I would also recommend her other book series "the summer I turned pretty" I read those 5 years ago but I intend to read then again because of how much I enjoyed listening to this book now.
I would 100% recommended to anyone who is looking for a lovely and exciting high school romance story. So cute!

P E R F E C T - G I R L Y - R E A D

My usual type of book is crime/murder/thriller so going for this book was a big risk for me as it is not my typical book genre. However, after watching the Netflix Original film by the same name when it was first released (Noah Centineo ... how gorgeous!) i wanted to watch it again straight away, however, after the 4th time i decided enough was enough and decided to read the book instead just to get a little bit of a different perspective of it. I downloaded the book and couldn't stop listening! i started sitting in my car on my lunch break at work so i could sit and eat my sandwich and play the audio through the speakers in my car. The book. as usual. is not exactly the same as the movie, the book has way more detail and feels more personal and emotional, as i feel the movie was a bit rushed and didn't capture all of the magic that belongs in the book.

I could go on forever about the narrator 'Laura Knight Keating', she is amazing and i can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series not only to find out what else happens in the story but to listen to this Narrator. She did an amazing job, there is one scene in the book when the main character Laura Jean and her sister Margot are having an argument and i genuinely felt a lump in my throat as the voice acting was just so real and amazing. This being the first audiobook i have ever read, i was really happy with this as i was scared that the book would be read by a stiff robotic voice which may ruin the book and the experience for me.

If you are looking for a challenging and thought provoking read, then this is not the book for you. If however, you are looking for a lighthearted, easy and feel-good read that makes you smile when you just want a little escape from the real world for little while, then this is the perfect book for you. It's the perfect blend of happy, romantic, funny and family love that has the ability to give you a little happiness boost even if you only have 5/10 minutes to listen to it here and there. If you were worried about buying this book because you've seen the Netflix movie and not sure if there's any point in reading the book as well, please do not hesitate, the book is amazing and although still similar to the movie still an amazing read with way more detail and a deeper storyline.

Light summer reading

This book kept my interest from start to finish, because it all felt just so familiar. Reminded me of my own high school experiences, but with enough differences to stay intriguing. I was surprised to find it was part of a trilogy, as it wasn't bursting with action.

Strangely addictive!

This book is like a chick flick you can't tear your eyes away from! Lots of teen high school drama that really rings true to how much everything matters at that age. I didn't want to stop reading (well listening) towards the end and it really had to end without knowing what was going to happen next. Left me wanting more! The narrator was a tad annoying though...

Great listen

It's about Lara Jean that has a hat box full of litters that she writes to the boys that she loves but she never sends them. But one day her letters get sent. And what happens after is................ not going to tell but makes for a good story. Jenny Han is a great writer. The story makes you want to keep on listening. The narrator Laura Keating does a great job. She makes the story flow with her voice. 5 out if 5. Loved so much.

Love it!!!

I wasn't too sure about listening to a story like this via audio but it's such an easy read/listen. I got hooked on the story and listen to the whole thing in one day. Slightly long winded with the over described settings but you do get use to it the more you listen. The best part is how likable all the characters are. loved it already onto book 2 & 3
